Cookie Jar Shower Gift

There was a baby shower for a girl out here in Florida. I couldn't for the life of me think of what to get her. I finally came up with this idea. You should tell me if was a good idea or not. I decided to give her a cookie jar. I know that seems like a totally weird gift for a baby shower...but I enclosed this really cute poem...

A House should have a cookie jar
For when it’s half past three,
And children hurry home from school
As hungry as can be…

There’s nothing quite so splendid
On which a child can sup,
As chocolate chip cookies
And sweet milk in a cup.

A child should have someone
Waiting with a hug,
No matter what they bring home
A puppy or a bug.

For children only loiter
When the bell rings to dismiss,
If no one is home to greet them
With a cookie and a kiss.

Cute huh!! I thought so...she might not have thought that! LOL! But I put some vinyl on the jar...I think I did it a little too big...but Jordan thought it looked cool.

That is such a great idea! I think a lot of time people don't think beyond the "baby" time period. Love that idea!
